There was a huge surprise in Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid XI for the game against Villarreal on Saturday night. 

During the week there was speculation over whether the caoch would play reserves to keep players fresh for the Champions League final in a week's time.

However it wasn't like that. Zidane picked a virtually first-choice side, but with his son Luca in goal. We knew Keylor Navas would not play but he picked his son over reserve goalkeeper Kiko Casilla. 

Meanwhile Dani Carvajal and Cristiano Ronaldo returned after their respective injuries.
